Challenge Response-urgent!

  aitch2 12:10 23 Jan 2007

Over the past few days I have been sending and receiving emails to France without any problem. I have today received a "Challenge Response-Confirm your email by visiting http//" The text of which asks me to prove my message was sent by a human and not a computer, and to visit the above site and type in the alphanumeric text similar to the xxxx after the folder in the address. I have not come acrross this sort of thing before, alarm bells are ringing and I am not aware that my friend in France has signed up to anything like this. he would have said if he had.

Anyone had anything like this and is it genuine? I have been having spam problems but these are filtered out by Mailwasher. Computer is clean but once I've posted this will try ad-aware. Any info much appreciated.

I've seen it once before - its to cut out spam, bit of a pain but seems to work.

TomG-Many thanks for the response. Gives me some peace of mind. Just run ad-aware but that didn't show anything. Will do some more research.
